What happened to Abby’s eccentric back tattoo on NCIS?

Most of the ink fans looking at Abby Sciuto are actually Pauley Perrette’s real tattoos, except for two. She told Parade Magazine that “The cobweb on my character’s neck and the cross on her back belong to CBS.” Perrette got the fake ink because the producers of the series wanted visible tattoos for Abby, no matter what the character was wearing. But that did not mean that both fake tattoos always appeared on the show.

That Daily Express noted that fans noticed a few episodes where Abby’s cobweb tattoo did not show up. This was also repeated in fan Reddit forums as well. And while no one from the series has ever given an official reason why the cobweb was missing in a few scenes, it’s likely that the makeup team may have just forgotten to place it on Perrette a few times, or that it came out during filming. After all, the actor feared getting the neck tattoo and said it was sticky and would occasionally come off, especially if Abby had a choker.

As for the fake cross tattoo, fans occasionally saw it on Abby in the show’s first six seasons. However, another tattoo appears on Abby’s back in the season 7 episode “Truth and consequences. “Here, Abby is shown with a tattoo of a daisy on her back, and fans see it until Perrette’s exit from” NCIS. “This tattoo is actually Perrette’s, as she was seen revealing it during red carpet events. It is possible that real ink could have just replaced the cross, as the fake tattoo does not appear in later” NCIS “seasons.
